Rewari: Throwing his weight behind agitating farmers here, INLD chief Om Prakash Chautala on Sunday assured them that any forcible acquisition of their fertile land by Bhupinder Singh Hooda regime would be cancelled and their land returned to them if his party was voted to power in Haryana.

The farmers of five villages - Kalaka, Jhanjhanwas, Peevara, Mandhiya and Konsiwas, have been staging a protest dharna at the Poswal chowk for the past four days demanding nullification of notices recently sent to them by the authorities for acquisition of their fertile land.

Accompanied by party legislator Rameshwar Dayal, former minister Jagdsih Yadav, district party president Sunil Chaudhary and others, the former chief minister reached the chowk and extended his party's full support to their stir.

Dubbing the Hooda government as "pro-builders", Chautala called upon farmers to remain firm in their resolve and said if the state government used force to dislodge them, his party activists would ever be there to bear the brunt.

Leader of the protestors Gurdayal Singh Namabardar said if the state government still stuck to its intentions, their agitation would spread throughout Ahirwal region and they would wipe out the Congress at the hustings.
